the senate and that he can block president obama's agenda. so let's just be honest about what's going on here. >> senior congressional correspondent dana bash, our guide, this week as we check on the key races. we have been following this race. it is already -- it long since has gotten personal. last night, kicked it up a notch. >> reporter: oh, my, sure did. i was in massachusetts doing a story on this race this summer and talked to both candidates. and it was already going to be an intense race. and it was already clear then that this -- these two -- let's be honest, these two people not only are they running against each other for a seat they don't seem to like each other. that was incredibly clear with the sound bite you just played, but also clear with this -- maybe the line of the night, which came from scott brown. listen. >> if you're going to comment on my record, i would at least have you refer to it -- >> excuse me. >> go ahead. >> i'm not a student in your classroom, please let me respond, okay? thank you. >> reporter: the back story there is not just the obvious, which is that wa
presidential in that group. we'll see how he does next to president obama which i think is a little bit different. >> yeah. >> that ohio poll is interesting because the cbs one we had last week had it at ten points. now we have another one showing it at nine points. if you start to look at the map, if he doesn't take iowa, if it gets away from him, it becomes difficult to put a puzzle together to win. >> by the way, there has been this narrative that there is the grand conspiracy and that the polls are skewed. this is what walter mondale said in 1984. this is what moveon.org said in 2004, that all the polls were skewed against john kerry and moveon.org said you just wait. and now you're hearing it frantically on the other side, which ironically, again, they are putting fox news in the grand conspiracy. >> what about the conference call today that we have to plan and organize? >> exactly. my point is here we've got a couple of local polls that are showing this, and more importantly, and you guys talk to the romney people all the time. i certainly talk to them all the time. i can tell you
the governor just said about his own plan? >> obama: well for 18 months he has been running on this tax plan, and now, five weeks before the election, he is saying his big bold idea is never mind and the fact is that if you are lowering the rates the way you describe, governor, then it is not possible to come up with enough deductions and loopholes that only affect high income individuals to avoid either raising the deficit or burdening the middle class. it's math. it's arithmetic. now governor romney and i do share a deep interest in encouraging small business growth. so at the same time that my tax plan has already lowered taxes for 98% of families i also lowered taxes for small businesses 18 times, and what i want to do is continue the tax rates -- the tax cuts that we put into place for small businesses and families but i have said that for incomes over $250,000 a year that we should go back to the rates that we had when bill clinton was president when we created 23 million new jobs, went from deficit to surplus, and created a whole lot of millionaires to boot. a
a commanding performance. most americans believe he trounced president obama in their first showdown. more on that in a moment. first, some of the reactions. even as the dust was settling. >> a week ago, people were saying this was over. we've got a horse race. mitt romney, his performance was head and shoulders above anything we've ever seen him do before. >> mitt romney rose to the moment tonight. in a way, frankly, that surprised me. >> it looked like romney wanted to be there and president obama didn't want to be there. >> dan lothian is in denver. morning, dan. mr. obama can't be feeling very good this morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, look, as you just played out in those sound bites, it was a big night for governor romney. some have suggested it was a make or break debate for him. he certainly showed up to fight. and voters agree he got the win in a cnn or flash poll, 67% of the voters said he won the debate. 25% saying president obama won. how did he do it? he challenged the president, never backed down even as the president appeared not to want to push back until the secon
>> while romney is trying to capitalize on his debate performance, president obama meanwhile on the defensive over his. advisers promise a change before the second debate next week. with just 32 days now till the big vote, every move is critical. as abc's jake tapper reports. >> reporter: before a crowd of 12,000 in denver, the president tried to turn his opponent's polished debate performance into proof of his phoniness. >> when i got on to the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. but the real mitt romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy. >> reporter: in the audience many of the president's supporters expressed bewilderment at his performance. >> i felt like he should have been more aggressive. >> i didn't understand his strategy and thought, you know, i wondered what was going on. >> reporter: sources tell abc news, the president's strategy was a calculated decision not to risk appearing unpresidential by attacking romney on say that video insulting 47% of the coun

opportunities? >> two big missed opportunities, i think, from both sides. president obama did not go after mitt romney on that 47% comment. that has been dominating the debate conversation the last couple weeks. didn't go aggressively on it. some people, democrats will say he should have done that. mitt romney said the middle-class has gotten crushed by the obama administration, but didn't say, just like joe biden said yesterday, would have been a great opportunity to say look even at your own vice president admits it. >> two more chances left to go. plus the veep debate as well. thank you to karen travers, reporting live from denver. thank you again, karen. coverage of last night's debate is far from over. later this half-hour some of your political observations. posted on our facebook fan page. keep it here on abc. all morning long. >>> and tomorrow, we'll get the latest gauge on unemployment nationwide from the labor department and it does not look encouraging. september's jobless rate is predicted to edge up slightly to 8.2% when the federal report is released, up 0.1% from august. a privat
and they don't start out being an obama proposal or a romney proposal or a democratic proposal. i am interested in exactly what is said in the debate in the next four weeks. whoever wins says in a week or two after the election. that is the time to step up and do the broader leadership and be tougher. >> what would you like to hear president obama singapore after the election? >> your view is as mine is, we are not going to have a deal that doesn't have revenues and spending in the biggest obstacle is on the revenue side and that, as i do believe, i have asked a lot of democratic senators that my perception is correct, and that is that republicans continue to believe that at the end of the day in the 11th hour, democrats will come together as they did in 2011 and 2010. one of the things the president has to do is to make it crystal clear that he is not going to accept a deal that doesn't have both revenues and spending. i think that when that becomes accepting, that is my fear of what we going to january 4. the sooner that is believed, that, to me, raises the predicate for both sides to get a b
and it became a choice between paul ryan and mitt romney and president obama and vice president biden's very different visions of our economic future. and so we're going to see that teased out again in the debate. i mean, those poll numbers are pretty locked in six weeks out. >> governor ed endell and alicia menendez, thank you for your time tonight. >> thank you. >> thanks, rev. >>> still ahead, eric cantor and the tea party were going to change washington. now they're hiding from their records. but we won't let them. that's next.

democrats. >> there was a decision from the sixth circuit court of appeals on friday of last week that came out in favor of the obama campaign position that for three days before the election, civilian voters have to be treated the same as military voters. >> when you come to this campus, it is the ohio state university. there are 60,000 students plus on campus including the satellite campuses. our phone lines are open. set aside for those in the state of ohio, the president traveling here. also chris-crossing the state and into the 800 at doral votes that are up for grabs. let me go back to issue two. a big ballot initiative. >> it has to do with redistricting. in 2006, the democrats swept every statewide office with the exception of the state auditor's position. every single office, that was in 2010. it coincides with the census which triggers a redistricting. republicans did with the majority party typically has gotten when given the plan to redraw maps. that favors republicans. we had a 50-50 state. and when you look at the legislative map and the congressional map, it is way out of wha
't think anybody is doing anything deliberate, but i do think the one number that should concern the obama forces is the fact that he is -- if rasmussen is correct, that far below 50% because historically the undecideds in the last weeks, indeed sometimes it's the last few days of an election, the undecided us usually shift against the incumbent simply because the incumbent is the one they know the most about, and therefore the incumbent is the one that has the edge in having people make up their minds one way or the other. i know in my own first race, i was well behind my opponent who was at 48%. in the last ten days, i said, look, after all the money he's spent if he's only at 48%, that means 52% of people want somebody else, and it turned out i won. he got 48 1/2. connell: president is 48 in the rasmussen overall, he's up 2. and also up in the gallup tracking poll. >> i would say i think romney has had a rough few weeks here and i think it is pretty clear that the polls are moving in the direction of the president in ohio and florida, pennsylvania, and so on, iowa. but this is not -- th
on the campaign trail for a couple of weeks, heually gave mt romney aop to compassia individuals on the campaign trail suffering because of the obama economy as he said that would do better under his tax plans and by not lit galling he will have a less of a chance of making that point because mitt romney seemed pretty compassionate last night. >> okay. so malpractice you see. john avlon had a jaw dropping moment. let's watch the moment and then we'ltalk. >> well, i don't have a $5 trillion tax cut. i don't have a tax cut of the scale you're talking about. my view is that we ought to provide tax relief to people in the middle class but i won't redees the share of taxes paid by high income people. >> jaw dropping because -- >> i mean, just surreal. the size of the etch-a-sketch. the audacity on taxes. which was unbelievable. i mean, almost as if mitt romney's not listening to the campaign rhetoric for five years. the core difnc candidates is about the tax cuts for the upper income bracket and 20% tax cut across the board. mitt romney never specified the deductions that he discusses and doesn't giv
will be made an issue in that debate to set up the presidential debate next week. it will be about whether we purposely withdrew security out of libya before this attack, and that is a serious thing and a big blemish for obama and biden. dagen: what say you? >> i think the same thing. there is a smoking gun potentially, and i underscore potentially, dagen, in what happened in libya. that could be the october surprise in the campaign. the obama campaign is trying to run out the clock. dagen: you have to worry about syria and turkey. >> you certainly do. dagen: which connell will be talking about coming up not to steal your thunder mcshane. doug schoen, john leboutillier, terrific to see you. you can catch them every monday on foxnews.com. it is every weekend on campaign insiders on the fox news channel. there you go. connell: not to steal your thunder at all because mitt romney is the one who hopes he has the thunder. he's speaking right now, there he is, live in virginia, talking about foreign policy, and that's reason we're going to bring up syria. our next guest is john bolton, one of the t
